I want to teach myself welding from a book. Is this possible?

In all the beginner books I've seen (via Amazon, never been able to find one to actually open) the reviews indicate the need for some prior welding knowledge. Is there a good reason? Is welding something I HAVE to take a class to learn? I'm extremely handy and tool knowledgeable. I do electrical, I do plumbing, I do finish carpentry, I fix my car, etc, etc, etc. But I can't weld!! Boo hoo.
I don't want to take a class because they all seem to be in the eve and that's my family time.
